ToyFest 2024 show dates revealed
ToyFest 2024 is slated to return to The Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas March 3-5, 2024, according to the Western Toy and Hobby Representatives Association (WTHRA).
The newly opened Expo Center in downtown Las Vegas served as the venue for ToyFest the past two years. ToyFest attendees have access to crossover gift and accessory lines presented at the World Market Center’s permanent showrooms.
